Once the SRT Viper was launched onto the market, everyone knew that more powerful version are going to follow. SRT CEO, Ralph Gilles, already hinted that a Viper ACR version could arrive in the near future, and now new rumors suggest the model could debut sometime in 2014.
If you were wondering why the model is taking so long to arrive on the market, the answer is simpler than you have probably imagined. It’s not the cost, the engine or any other technical part, rather it’s SRT is having problems with the tires. It looks like SRT has signed an agreement to Pirelli to develop something other than the P-Zero Corsa the Viper already wears.
Along with the new tires, the new Viper ACR will also receive bigger brakes, adjustable dampers, a new aerodynamic package and lots of upgrades made to lower the car’s ride. The most impressive update, however, will be made under the hood, where the 8.4-liter all-aluminum V-10 engine will be tricked to deliver much more than in the standard version. We’ll find out in a few months exactly how much more power Fiat will allow SRT to squeeze out of the Viper ACR.
